Celebrate Halloween At Hellbent’s Beer N Bones Blacklight Bash for Puerto Rico

Don’t you just hate it when Halloween falls on a Wednesday?  I mean, do you celebrate the weekend before or the weekend after?  Some might say both.  Some might say celebrate on the day anyway, even if it’s a Wednesday.  Personally, I like the idea of celebrating the weekend before and the weekend after.

If you’re planning on celebrating Halloween this year on the weekend before the 31st, then Hellbent Brewing Company has an event you might want to check out.  On Saturday, October 27th, they’ll be hosting a Beer N Bones Backlight Bash with a portion of the proceeds from sales of their Funky Red Patina going to benefit Solarize Puerto Rico.  They’ll also be releasing their 2018 Warm Fuzzies Winter Ale.

Craft Beer Monger’s Picks For Seattle Beer Week 10

Ten years ago.  That’s when it all began.  That’s when Seattle area craft beer lovers got to experience the first ever Seattle Beer Week and the first ever official Seattle Beer Week beer (a double IPA from Pike Brewing Company).  Back then, many of our favorite local craft breweries and craft beer bars didn’t even exist yet.  Whereas today, it seems, we have a craft brewery or craft beer bar around almost every corner.

More craft breweries and more craft beer bars means even more Seattle Beer Week events.  Are you ready?  Surviving the week (actually 11 days) will take careful planning. I’m here to give you some suggestions on which events you might want to check out.  So sit back, if you’ve managed to pick up any yet, grab yourself a can of this year’s official Seattle Beer Week beer – Citrus Galaxy IPA from Georgetown Brewing Company – and take a look a Craft Beer Monger’s Picks for Seattle Beer Week 10.

Cheese Wars Returns To Hellbent Brewing For Seattle Beer Week 10

 

Cheese is addictive. That’s not just an opinion.  There have even been studies done that show that cheese may even be as addictive as heroin. Well, despite that conclusion, I’m not ashamed to say that I’m hooked.  I’m a cheese addict, and I know many others who are as well.

Hellbent Brewing Company has picked up on this. Last year during Seattle Beer Week #9, they hosted an event called Roquefort One: A Cheese Wars Story, where they pitted two local food trucks against each other in an ultimate cheesy, beer-fueled competition to raise money for Seattle Children’s Hospital.

Roquefort One was such a success, that Hellbent is bringing the event back next month for Seattle Beer Week 10.  This year it’s The Peach & the Pig vs. Wicked Good Grinders in Cheese Wars: The Last Cheddai.  The Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion will also be back this year in full costume to make this an event to remember.  Don’t worry though, no Bothans died to bring you this information.

Hellbent Brewing Announces Upcoming Releases

Hellbent Brewing Company is one of those Seattle breweries that I just don’t get to visit as often as I’d like. My unusual work hours, combined with the fact that I live in the South end, mean that I don’t get to visit many North end breweries that often.  However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy their beers and will enjoy a few pints whenever I find beers on tap from breweries I don’t get to enough.

Between next Wednesday, January 17th and the beginning of February, Hellbent Brewing Company is set to release two beers and their first ever 16 oz cans. First us is a returning favorite: Big Island Toasted Coconut Stout.  This beer was largely inspired by the fact that one of Hellbent’s owners, Randy Embernate, is from the big Island of Hawaii.  Also on the way is their Sparrowhawk Belgian Blond and their House IPA and Dang! Citra IPA in 16 oz cans.

Hellbent Brewing Prepares For Their 2017 Fresh Hoptoberfest

The end of Summer and the return of Fall is a double-edged sword in the Pacific Northwest.  The downside is that we start to lose our Summer sun and Summer temperatures.  The upside, however, is that Fall brings along with it all those wonderful, aromatic, tasty Fresh Hop Ales.

Hellbent Brewing Company is celebrating this Fresh Hop season in a big way.  They’re throwing a big party on Saturday, September 30th, featuring the release of their own Amarillo Fresh Hop IPA.

Hellbent Brewing Prepares For Their 2nd Anniversary

With the proliferation of new breweries in the Seattle area, it seems that there’s another anniversary celebration around every corner.  I recently told you about the anniversary celebrations at Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor), Lucky Envelope Brewing and Top Rung Brewing and now it’s time for another young Seattle brewery to celebrate.

Coming up next Saturday, June 10th, Hellbent Brewing Company (who recently brought you the event: ‘Roquefort One – A Cheese Wars Story‘) will be celebrating their 2nd Anniversary.

Hellbent Brewing Presents Roquefort One A Cheese Wars Story

 

Brace yourself.  This article gets pretty cheesy.  A long time ago, while eating at a food truck not so far away… Hellbent Brewing Company thought, “What the Hell. Let’s pit two food trucks against each other, give it all a Star Wars Rogue One kind of theme and let’s make it a benefit for Seattle Children’s Hospital.”

It is a period of cheesy war. Rebel food trucks striking from hidden kitchens are seeking victory against the evil lactic empire and the stakes are high.  They’ll need help from the Rebel Legion and the 501st Legion (who will be in attendance wearing costumes from the actual movies) if they are to be victorious.  Your little Wookiees are welcome at this event too, as there will even be a Star Wars themed dog costume contest before the Roquefort-themed food truck competition kicks off.
